SW 110th Avenue closed for new development

Proposed Tonquin Meadows subdivision will feature new roads connecting with Boeckman Bridge


by: SPOKESMAN FILE PHOTO: JOSH KULLA - SW 110th Avenue in Villebois, shown here earlier this spring, is being closed to drivers and vacated. New roads are planned that will connect the Boeckman Bridge to the new Tonquin Meadows subdivision. Wilsonville drivers beware: big changes are coming to the way you get through and around Villebois.

On July 9, Southwest 110th Avenue between Southwest Tooze Road and Southwest Mt. Blanc Street will be closed permanently in order to allow for the construction of the Tonquin Meadows residential development. New roads to replace Southwest 110th Avenue are a big part of this and eventually will allow drivers to connect to Villebois directly from the Boeckman Road roundabout at the west end of the Boeckman Bridge.

“We apologize for the inconvenience that the closure of 110th Avenue has to the travel of area residents,” said Wilsonville Community Development Director Nancy Kraushaar. “However, doing so now allows the developer to move forward and complete the replacement Villebois Drive route extension this fall.”

Homebuilder Polygon Northwest plans to start land-grading and construction work immediately on the new permanent connection, with Northwest Earthmovers carrying out the work on the ground. It will consist of extending Southwest Costa Circle and building a new segment of Southwest Villebois Drive north to the Boeckman Road roundabout. The city of Wilsonville said it expects work to be finished by roughly November.

During the approximate four-month closure of this north-south route in Villebois, two detour routes are available:

* Western Detour Route: Barber Street in Villebois, then Grahams Ferry Road to connect to Tooze Road.

* Eastern Detour Route: SW Boeckman Road to Boberg Road to Barber Street to Boones Ferry Road.

The Wilsonville City Council approved vacation of Southwest 110th Avenue in March. Portions of the vacated road will be found in several new streets, including SW Villebois Drive North, SW Berlin Avenue and SW Stockholm Avenue. In addition, parts of what used to be SW 110th will also become bike lanes and sidewalks, as well as parks and residential lots for Tonquin Meadows.
